We have been considering carefully whether to proceed with the proposed Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for Good Friday (10 April) – taking account of the Government’s advice concerning Corona virus (Covid 19). That advice is to avoid unnecessary contact with other people and, specifically, to steer clear of large gatherings. Bearing in mind that the Easter Egg Hunt has attracted hundreds of children (and their parents/carers) in previous years, we have concluded that it would be irresponsible to proceed. The event is therefore CANCELLED for the current year.
We apologise to everyone who was looking forward to the event, but the cancellation decision is unfortunately inevitable in order to protect visitors to the park. Other Friends of Cwmdonkin Park events, which are currently in the planning stage, will be reviewed over the next few weeks.

It’s been a while since we have posted, but we are very pleased and excited to be able to advise everyone of our Easter egg Hunt on Sunday, April 14th.
The event is free for everyone but the hunt is aimed for children up to 11. Please arrive at the kiosk anytime from between 2pm and 4pm to sign up.
